A helicopter crashed into a field in North Yorkshire, killing two persons. The cause of the plane’s crash near Burton in Lonsdale is being investigated; the cause is now unknown. After the helicopter crashed soon before midday near Bentham Road, emergency personnel raced to the area. Two people were killed as a result, North Yorkshire Police said later Monday afternoon. Specially trained cops are assisting their relatives, according to the force.


As emergency services respond to the situation, specialist air accident investigators have been summoned to the collision scene, and road closures have been put in place. As emergency personnel operate nearby, aerial photos of the scene appear to reveal the burnt wreckage of the chopper. The public has been “strongly advised” to stay away from the area.


A huge area around the collision site has been blocked off as the investigation continues, according to Sky News correspondent Frazer Maude, who was near to the scene. “We believe this helicopter crashed immediately after take-off, as I said.” We don’t know if it was due to pilot error or mechanical breakdown. “It could’ve been a variety of things.” At the moment, it appears that the weather is near-perfect, with bright skies and no major wind. “I’m guessing the two main causes that air crash investigators are looking into are pilot mistake or mechanical breakdown.” He said he spoke with a local farmer who had seen a column of smoke rising into the sky but had not heard the collision.


Burton is a rural community near the Lancashire-Cumbria border. The Yorkshire Ambulance Service claimed it “deployed a number of services to the area,” but didn’t elaborate. The event was also attended by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service. On social media, residents of the nearby community of Ingleton recounted seeing black smoke in the vicinity as well as a big number of emergency personnel. According to the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), an examination has been initiated into what happened, and inspectors are on their way to the accident scene to begin their investigation.
